The Photographer: Diane Betties
Diane Betties was born in East Germany and began experimenting with photography at a young age as a way to hold on to life’s intimate, fleeting moments. In her work now, she still looks for those moments, which are reflected in her unique aesthetic and distinct photographic style of natural beauty and clear composition – effortless, confident and optimistic, yet calm and sensual.
Diane holds degrees in global studies and international management, and, while she intitially worked on travel and landscape photography, she is now a fashion, editorial and portrait photographer who calls both Berlin and London home.
